Types of Membership - note that membership cannot and will not be refunded.

Life Membership offers all membership rights during your time in Cambridge and after graduation. 

Annual Membership offers membership for a year, but you are not eligible to vote in society elections or for a free ball ticket. During the year, you have the option to upgrade to lifetime membership by paying the difference. This opportunity expires at the end of your year. Annual members are NOT eligible for a freshers' ball ticket.​

Access/Bursary Membership To purchase Access/Bursary Membership, sign up as an annual member and bring evidence from Student Finance England that your household income has been assessed at £25, 000 or below (thus eligible for the bursary outlined above). If you cannot provide this on collection of your card, you will be given an annual membership card, which can be upgraded to access life membership for a processing fee of £6 when you present evidence at a later stage. If you have any questions please email our officers at  Note:  If you think you may be eligible for access membership DO NOT join as a life member - refunds cannot be given.

Online Membership is a new type of membership available only for students not eligible for regular membership (such as those at other Universities). By paying a £30 annual subscription, you can watch all Union events live online, and contribute to them via Twitter.
